Hey Gin Blossoms fans, did you miss GB lead singer Robin Wilson and guitarist Scotty Johnson's intimate gig at Last Exit last Tuesday? Don't stress. Wilson will be doing a very similar show again Tuesday, June 30 to continue to raise funds for the Love Hope Strength Foundation, a music centric cancer charity. As we reported last week, the Gin Blossoms frontman is one of 30 musicians from around the globe who will climb Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro, the world's largest freestanding mountain, in the fall to raise money for the Love Hope Strength Foundation.
